Cariou v Prince meets Iron Chef - Discussion & Crit at Printed Matter, NYC




Printed Matter: "Cariou v Prince meets Iron Chef" - Discussion & Crit with Joy Garnett, Greg Allen, and Chris Habib

Saturday evening (9/22/12), from 6-7:30PM. It should be insane. Or it will make you insane.

Location
Printed Matter, Inc.

New York, NY 10011 USA

The ongoing Cariou v. Prince trial has presented a high-stakes platform for debating copyright, appropriation, fair-use and artists' rights. One thing that's been oddly missing from the discussion, though, is the art itself.

Printed Matter will host a raucous crit of Richard Prince's little-seen but much-contested Canal Zone paintings, culminating in an open-forum, Iron Chef-style evaluation of each artwork in terms of content, aesthetics, and infringiness.

Using bootleg copies of Prince's banned exhibition catalogue and excerpts from the artist's own sworn deposition testimony which were never entered into evidence in court, panelists Joy Garnett, Greg Allen, and Chris Habib will take a closer, critical look at Prince's paintings and practice in an art historical context.

Joy Garnett is an artist and writer in Brooklyn, NY. She is also the founder of the blog NEWsgrist (where spin is art).

Greg Allen has been writing about the creative process at greg.org: the making of, since 2001. He published Canal Zone Richard Prince YES RASTA: Selected Court Documents from Cariou v. Prince et al. in 2011.

Chris Habib is an artist and the curator of HELP/LESS, which runs through Sept. 29th at Printed Matter.
